VIDEO: The Classroom is the Boat for Pre-Teen Junior Captains

Cheryl Conner Costello has worked in the Baltimore-Washington, DC area as a multimedia journalist for more than 17 years. Now she’s sharing her craft with Chesapeake Bay Magazine to help bring Bay Bulletin readers the stories happening along their shores. 

Independence, responsibility, and fundamental boating skills are all for the taking, in the Annapolis School of Seamanship’s new Junior Captains’ Program. For the first time, the school is hosting a class for kids. And when it’s over, these pre-teens and early teens will be qualified to take a powerboat out for a spin. Bay Bulletin’s Cheryl Costello rode along with the budding captains.
